Question:

What is the product of 562 and 342?

A 192,204
Explaination

When multiplying two large whole numbers, remember to use placeholder zeros to keep the problem aligned. In this problem, after multiplying 2*562, you need to add a zero in the ones column before continuing with the 4*562. Then, before multiplying the 3*562, add a zero into both the tens and ones column. Finally, add each of those three numbers to get 192,204.
